NEW SINGLE AVAILABLE FOR STREAMING!

Hey y’all!  My new single, Somewhere Behind The Sun, is available on Soundcloud! Take a listen.  Music video coming soon.

About the track…

Somewhere Behind The Sun was written on a Ukulele in Spain while hiking the Camino De Santiago. It is dedicated to all the Pilgrims who walk west towards the sun. 500 miles in 42 days & the biggest lesson I learned was that we are all searching for answers within, while just putting one foot in front of the other. This is for all the friends I made on that amazing adventure. & all these adventures. Buen Camino amigos!

Upcoming Single – Somewhere Behind The Sun

 

Many blessings from 10,000ft up in lovely Colorado!  I’ve spent many days the past couple months working on a new single at Mad House Recorders (undisclosed location), & I have to say.. it’s the most exciting project I have ever cocreated!  Tim Stroh, studio owner/engineer/producer, has been dedicating 14 hours a day with me on this tune.  Upright bassist & banjo player, Kalin Capra, hung out for a few days helping us get some awesome bass & banjo tracks.  Dean Oldencott, session drummer, cruised up here for an evening and soaked in the drum arrangement I made on Logic, then went in the big room and kicked it in the ass!

I cannot thank these cats enough for helping me create a beautiful arrangement & good vibes recorded by all.

Colorado Tour – Week 3 Recap

Golden, Denver, Fort Collins, Conifer, Red Rocks

Week 3 the gigs have been up & down the front range in CO. Thanks to all our friends who came out to the shows! It was so lovely to see old buddies & have people hootin & cheering us on from the crowd. We added a few new venues in the mix & it was an funtastic week with Kalin Capra joining me on the upright bass & banjo.

Hideaway Kitchen & Bar was a show over the dinner crowd. A few familiar faces popped in to listen to one of my more acoustic sets. The staff really dug it, & I’m sure I’ll revisit this “east coast feel” restaurant again.

Quixotes .. was dead. But! Our 3 fans who came out stayed for the whole show. I ended up having a few beers & performing tipsy which is not the norm, but what better time than when its a mellow night. Cool venue. Hope we can split the night with an act next time.

Hodi’s Half Note – we shared the night with 2 other acts. It was a 45 min set at the beginning of the night so Kalin & I kicked ass & sat back to enjoy the other band’s sounds from the green room. I did forget my tambourine on stage, so if any of the other bands’ members have it & would like to send it back to me, hit me up :)

Conifer Wedding.. They ziplined, they danced, they had a bonfire. At the end of the night, a Bose Rep gave me a brand new Line Array PA system to use on the road with the agreement I will give my input/write reviews back to the company. SCHWEET!!! Kalin & I jammed a great show. When the power went out, we ran into the crowd and kept everyone dancing and singing along. What a blast. I stayed up til dawn around the bonfire, drinking too much wine & playing music til the birdies took over for me.

The next day I went to Red Rocks for the first time & saw Rodriego Y Gabriela kill it on classical guitars. I had no idea Gabriela was the one dropping all that backbeat rhythm… hope someday she & I can drop the beats together. <musical swoon>

Monday Kalin & I jammed the Appaloosa Grill & it was off the hook! I’ve been playing this joint on the 16th street mall in Denver for a decade. We had a great turnout & everyone was dancing & digging the sound. Eric Imbrosciano sat in with us 2nd set & we got down trio style. fun times had by all~

Another week in the life … it’s for the living!

Week Two Recap – Colorado Tour

-Leadville, Morrison, Vail Valley, Summit County-

Howdy friends~ Hope all is well for you this lovely August. I just rode my motorcycle from Breckenridge to Leadville, CO this morning to do the final mixdown for the upcoming single. Seeing the mountains from that perspective was a pretty humbling sight. Here’s a recap of the past weekends adventures.

Thursday I headed out from our Leadville recording session to the Morrison Holiday Bar in Morrison, CO. The show went awesome! I played solo & had a grand time with the patrons and locals at MHB. I rocked out pretty hard the & didn’t feel like driving, so I slept in my van snug against Red Rocks.

The morning comes.. the van won’t start. Battery or Alternator? I learned how to test if it’s the battery or alternator, & headed to Sam’s in Denver for a rotation/balance & new battery.

The van, Ella, was running great again so I headed to Vail Valley for a show at the Main Street Grill w/ upright bassist, Kalin Capra. The gig was pretty good. I always try and bring 110% to the shows, but I had a terrible migraine & it effected my energy level. Still a good show, but I was so relieved to wake up the next day without the parade marching on my temples.  I slipped on my running shoes & went for a run around the neighborhood & a workout in the park. It was beautiful & a good recharge.

After a smoothie at Loaded Joe’s, we headed to Summit County for our show in Breckenridge at Motherloaded Tavern. This was a WILD NIGHT! Everyone was dancing & cheering us on. We jammed from one song to the next and kept the groove going all night with no break. What a riot! Tai did a live painting of us that I’ll post soon as it’s dry.

Sunday was a blast in Frisco! Art Fest, friend’s bday, coffee, wine, mussels, motorcycle, music, rain, sun, movie.. it was a good day off.

Today, Monday, Tim Stroh & I finish the new single, Somewhere Behind The Sun. Stay tuned for the new release & upcoming music video! Do good things take time?
